    do you think they bothered to notify Eset of it before going public? That would be a responsible thing to do to protect the public

    Hello,

    A fix was issued around 12:30PM (PDT) on May 7, 2010 as a part of archive module 1114.

    I am not sure how notification was made, but tt is possible the person who found the issue contacted a reseller or distributor instead of ESET directly.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
